DeSean Jackson’s home robbed of $325K in cash & jewelry

Philadelphia police are investigating a home burglary in which Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson was robbed of a reported $325,000 in cash and jewelry as well as a handgun.

Jackson was not at home in Philadelphia when the robbery took place last week sometime between Monday and Friday. Jackson’s mother reported the burglary Saturday morning after she arrived at the home Friday night and eventually discovered her son’s bedroom had been ransacked.

The burglars apparently disabled the home security system and robbed Jackson of about $200,000 in cash, $125,000 in jewelry and a handgun, authorities said.

Philadelphia police said they had no immediate suspects in the case.

Jackson, 27, is a sixth-year pro who led the Eagles in receiving this season with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.

    So, if you're some half-cocked house robber and you discover $200k in cash, wouldn't you ditch the jewelry? Some friend of his who knew he had it in his bedroom did this.

    Now, why the hell would you have that kind of cash in your bedroom? And if you have a gun for protection, what good did it do you here or if you are not home? Waiting for a midnight zombie apocalypse I guess.

      Seriously, $20 says it was someone who he knows that knew he had a stash.
